A Look Back at 1979
In the late 1970s, when 9 to 5 is set, the tools of corporate America included Rolodex cards, electric typewriters, mimeograph machines and carbon paper. Office dress codes were strict – and sexism was as common as a
coffee break. Lots of things have changed since then. Take a look back at 1979 and see how much!

Making Movie History
and Memories
Good Company Players’ production of Moonlight
and Magnolias continues on stage through February
21. In this hit comedy, legendary producer David O.
Selznick has shut down production of his new epic,
Gone with the Wind. The screenplay just doesn’t work.
So what’s an all-powerful movie mogul to do? While
fending off the film’s stars and gossip columnists, Selznick summons screenwriter Ben Hecht and director
Victor Fleming to his office. He locks the doors, closes
the shades, and on a diet of bananas and peanuts, the
three men labor over five hilarious days to fashion a
screenplay that will become one of the most successful and beloved films of all time. Rated PG-13
GCP’s production of Tennessee Williams’ The Glass
Menagerie opens February 25. Amanda Wingfield is a
faded, tragic remnant of Southern gentility who lives
in a dingy St. Louis apartment with her son, Tom,
and her daughter, Laura. Tom seeks escape
in alcohol and the world of the movies.
Laura also lives in her illusions. her mother’s anxiety to see her married has driven
her more and more into herself. Their lives
are shaken when Tom invites a young man
of his acquaintance to take dinner with the
family. A drama of great tenderness, charm
and beauty, The Glass Menagerie is one of
the most famous plays of the modern theatre. Rated PG
Tickets for Moonlight and Magnolias and
The Glass Menagerie are on sale at the Box
Office, by phone at 266-0660 or 800-3714747, or online at www.2ndspacetheatre.com
In a magical kingdom beneath the sea, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel, longs to leave her ocean
home to live in the world above. That’s the basis for
Disney’s The Little Mermaid, GCP’s next production
opening March 17 at Roger Rocka’s.
Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most
beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney’s The Little Mermaid is a delightful story for the
whole family. With music by eight-time Academy
Award winner Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater, and a book by Doug Wright,
this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs including “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the
Girl,” and “Part of Your World.”
Ariel, King Triton’s youngest daughter, wishes to
pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above
and bargains with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade
her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems
and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends
Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull, and Sebastian
the crab to restore order under the sea. Rated G
Tickets for Disney’s The Little Mermaid are now on
